Nobuhito Nakaoka Tanka Yakishime Large Rectangle Plate
Nobuhito began his pottery apprenticeship under Tadashi Nishihata in Tamba. He traveled to St. Vincent, a small island in the Caribbean, to teach pottery for two years. After returning to Japan, he opened his new kiln in Tamba. He creates art pieces such as vases and matcha bowls, as well as everyday tableware. His blue and red glazes beautifully melt into the base white glaze.
This rectangular plate is fired using a technique called yakishime, where no glaze is applied on top of the clay. It is fired at very high temperatures, causing the clay to become hard and usable. The colors seen on the plate are a result of the clay and the firing process, and each piece looks different.
